For the last several years Rhode Island Red has joined me at Bunky's Breakfast in Helena, Arkansas during the Arkansas Blues and Heritage festival AKA The Biscuit. So when I was recording "For My Dad" last summer I called this one "Rhode Island Rag" after my friend Jim Chapin who is Rhode Island Red.
It was pretty windy so I used my Lawrence pickup. On the other channel I tried my favorite mic for recording acoustic guitar, a Realistic 1070b, with a wind filter. This worked great at suppressing the wind noise. The audio from the video camera has plenty and the 1070b almost none.
You can download all the songs on "For My Dad" here.
Please let me know if these don't work or if your player isn't listed.
